The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences offers webinars which are specially designed to support clinicians who provide couples counseling to this population. This week we’re wrapping up our initial sessions of the 2018 Couples Webinar Series. On Thursday, we’ll be presenting all three sessions over the course of the day, starting at 10 a.m. Eastern.
